What Is A Desktop Computer?

A desktop computer is a computer that, for lack of a better term, generally tends to live somewhere underneath or on “top” of your desk. They can come in all shapes and sizes, but most often are shipped in rectangular cases that are a foot or two tall at most. Inside the shell they contain a processor, a graphics card (sometimes two in gaming desktops), a motherboard, RAM, a hard drive (or SSD), and a power supply to keep everything up and running. In order to use a desktop computer to its fullest, you’ll also need an external display or monitor, as well as a keyboard and mouse.

What Price Should You Expect To Pay For A Desktop Computer?

Of all the product categories out there, the prices of desktop computers probably have the widest berth of the bunch. A solid desktop computer that runs most programs and even a few games can cost as little as $300, while others that run entire servers while playing Crysis 3 on ultra settings at the same time can set you back upwards of $10,000. With desktop computers, the sky really is the limit.

Which Are The Leading Desktop Computer Brands?

The best desktop brands out there also happen to be the same companies who have dominated the space for the past two decades or so, including Dell, HP, and Lenovo. Other companies like ASUS and Acer have also started to edge their way into the market, but if you want a seal of quality from the brand name alone, you can't go wrong with the original contenders.

Common Mistakes to Avoid

When buying a new desktop computer, you'll want to be sure that you're getting the absolute best value for your money. Often pre-built gaming computers are way overpriced compared to what you would get if you build it yourself, but there are a few models that are reasonably priced for the power they come with inside. Also, be sure that you have all the right peripherals when you hit the checkout, as well as Wi-Fi handled either by an internal card or a USB wireless dongle. Desktops don't automatically include Wi-Fi capability on their own, so don't forget to add it on to your total receipt.
